A documentary about the NY designer refuses to ask difficult questions

Milton Glaser
Directed by Wendy Keys
At Cinema Village
Runtime: 73 minutes

Milton Glaser, the designer and artist, has shaped our perception of modern New York City more than any other single individual. Yes, he’s the man behind the simple, yet effectual, I  NY campaign from the 1970s, but he’s also responsible for countless other brand identities and was the co-founder of New York magazine with Clay Felker (they owe him for that iconic logo). Unfortunately, the portrait first-time director Wendy Keys paints of the 80-year-old is more about myth building than anything else.
